    In general, you want to avoid salty foods. I might give my 9 hens one handful of salted peanuts, once, but I wouldn't make a regular habit of it. I'd buy unsalted instead.

    Welcome to BYC! You should probably feed them unsalted peanuts. Every now and then salted peanuts is fine, but it is not very healthy for them if you make it regular. Hope this helps! [​IMG]
